Repentance and righteousness are not God's end for the Christian. Instead, they are stepping stones to intimacy and fellowship with Jesus. This intimacy comes at a high price: suffering, discipline, and consciously and deliberately giving up control of your life to Jesus. He will deal with the monsters in your life if you simply trust Him and not turn away. Have you given everything into the hand of Jesus or do you believe that you somehow can defeat these monsters in your life that come to ravage you?
